Bobby Womack, the R&B singer-songwriter who inspired artists from the Rolling Stones to Damon Albarn, has died aged 70.

Womack's publicist Sonya Kolowrat said the legendary singer died on Friday. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease two years ago and dealt with health issues, including prostate cancer. Womack performed recently at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee and seemed in good health.
